ECA Advisory Services

We are a team of experienced international experts focusing on ECA-covered project finance transactions.

We offer advisory services for Project Finance and ECA

Is a project eligible for Export Credit Agency (ECA) cover?

What financing structure fits the project concept?

How can we make a project bankable?

What are the main project risks and how can they be mitigated?

How should we negotiate and find a consensus with multiple financing institutions and ECAs?

We are a team of experienced international experts focusing on ECA-covered project finance transactions. The increasing implementation of project financing solutions and demand for ECA cover is an inevitable consequence of rising global demand for long-term financing of large capital-intensive projects. Project finance enables sponsors to fund major projects off-balance sheet on normally more favourable terms. Furthermore, sponsors are able to share diverse risks associated with complex, capital-heavy investments with lenders.

Nonetheless, investors willing to implement large-scale projects face numerous challenges, which can be mitigated by finding bespoke and tailored solutions. This is what our team consisting of ECA Advisory experts is focused on. Our colleagues have worked for German and international ECAs and have successfully advised on structuring Project Finance deals across the globe. Our services cover the entire project finance transaction lifecycle.
